2014 Week 4 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

The former starting quarterback came in during the fourth quarter and ran the ball. Assuming Bridgewater is OK for Thursday night, Ponder should return to the bench where Vikings fans will pray he stays.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater remains hopeful (Tue Sep 30, 04:13 PM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) is feeling 'much better' Tuesday, Sept. 30, and head coach Mike Zimmer remains hopeful that Bridgewater can play in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Oct. 2. If Bridgewater is going to throw and push off his left foot, he'll likely do so during a walk-through Wednesday, Oct. 1.

Our View: If this wasn't a short week, we'd be more hopeful about Bridgewater's availability. The Vikings play on Thursday night against the Packers, and we might not see the rookie quarterback under center after his impressive start in Week 4. QB Christian Ponder would make his first start of the year if Bridgewater doesn't play.
